Very nice Sean, I like the whipping thread colour, it makes a refreshing change from maroon or green :Hat:

Nice job, Sean! I like to job you've done on that.

I bet it's small enough to fit into the boot of the car too. I could do with a trotting rod that could fit in the boot for when I visit friends in Yorkshire, as I will be doing tomorrow. I usually take a rod with me for the journey home the next day. Grayling of the Wharfe, here I come! :Beg:

Hope you caught Jack. I was down on the Warwickshire Avon, but sadly it seems the fish weren't not at home.

Whilst this will fit in the boot of a car you'd be better with a longer rod a 10ft 6in Aspindales Aero 890 will do the job nicely.

Looks lovely Sean, a very worthwhile refurbishment. What length is the rod, I'm guessing it does a similar job to a Chapman 500?
It's a 9 footer JC with slightly less power in the butt than a 500.
